Menu Plan Monday


This is a Monday morning if there ever was one.  We are all getting a slow start to the day.  I’ve been up half the night with an allergy attack, and we’re all just plum wore out.  So here I sit, breathing out of one nostril, trying to ignore my pounding headache, and guzzling coffee like in hopes that it will cure what ails me.

It was a full weekend, starting Thursday night with our Morimoto blogging event.


Then Friday night I went to a Phillies game with my boys where we slaughtered the Red Sox.  Good times.


Saturday was my my ill-fated trip to NYC for the Hebrew National picnic.

Yes, I did eat a hot dog!


And finally Sunday was filled with church in the morning, a birthday party in the afternoon, and an impromptu get-together with friends in the evening.

PHEW!  I need a vacation.  Wait.  I just had one.  Durnit.  Guess I’ll just have to suck it up and face the week head-on.  And I might as well start with a little menu planning session.  At least that way, if I get nothing else accomplished today, I’ll know what we’re eating this week.

MONDAY: Herbed Chicken Rosé, herbed new potatoes, oven roasted asparagus

TUESDAY: spaghetti with meatballs, side salad

WEDNESDAY: burgers on the grill, raw veggie platter, fresh spinach (blanched and sauteed)

THURSDAY: Chicken Enchiladas, side salad

FRIDAY: Linguine with Shrimp Scampi, steamed green beans

I’m not sure what the holiday weekend has in store for us, so I’m leaving that unplanned for now.
